The Tobacco Companies are spending money to campaign against Proposition 29 in California. The American Cancer Society is quoted "We are still ahead but it’s very close. Big tobacco has a bottomless budget to tell lies," said David Veneziano, head of the American Cancer Society’s California chapter. ACS has had billions of dollars to spread their lies and have violated every regulation of the IRS for 501 (c) 3 charitable nonprofits.
Forces is against any new taxes on tobacco because the states are receiving billions of dollars each year from Tobacco and will continue to do so till 2025.
